Default Fondant flowers and cake topper

I don't know if this is the right place for this, but if it is not please feel free to move it where it belongs.

I made these little buds for a friend of mine, her husband was the president of the Idaho Irrigation District and they were celebrating the 100 year anniversary. They were 300 mini flower to be place on top of each slice of cake.

The cake topper below was only symbolic and I needed to represent the time "then" and "now". I made a research to find out what exactly was in the region at that time and I discovered that it was only bare land, wild wild bare land and the Native Americans.
















Just to see how small they were I placed a candy next to them,

And this is the topper that ended on display in a high school.
All edible made out of sugar, frosting and candies.

Nice work, Cuisinette!

Great airbrush on the river - you captured the 'flow' of the water.

Are you working in fondant or gumpaste for the buildings?

Thanks SilverSage,
You won't believe it, the river is not airbrush but plain colored corn syrup, I brushed on the sugar board. It dried well and it was shinny as glass.

Yes the buildings, trees and bridge were made out of fondant. The rocks were from bulk candy that looks like rocks.
